I bumped my monitor and the display went out. I've double checked the power plug and USB connection and everything is in firm on the computer side and the wall outlet side. Is there anything else I can do?

    You say you checked the USB connection but did you check the cable connections from the computer to the monitor?

    When you first turn on the monitor, do you see anything (like a logo) appear? Try turning it off and on to check. If you get anything when you first turn it on, my first guess is that you have bumped the input button on your monitor. You need to cycle through the inputs until you get to the type of connection you have (VGA, DVI).

    Did you try pressing the buttons on the monitor?

Monitor went black what could be to possible causes for this?


Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

My pc wont continue booting because of usb overload


what makes you think its usb overload ?

Check your computer's power cable and the power cables to any devices connected to the computer. Make sure all cables are firmly plugged into electrical outlets and into the computer and other devices. If you have an extra power cable for your computer, swap it in to see if your computer's power cable is the problem. Remove your computer's battery, if it is a laptop, and connect the computer to a electrical outlet to see if it will start up. Sometimes a discharged battery will prevent a laptop from powering up. If your laptop still won't power up, remove the power cable, replace the battery and try to run the computer off battery power. Unplug your computer and plug a lamp or radio into the same electrical outlet and see if that device works.
If the lamp or radio doesn't work, the outlet is the problem. Unplug your computer and open your computer's case, if it is a desktop system. Look for loose cables, cards and connections and attach them firmly. Blow out any dust with a can of compressed air. Also, check your computer's memory chips to make sure they are all plugged in and seated properly. Close the case once you are done and plug in the computer. Disconnect any USB devices connected to your computer and try to power up the system. Sometimes a USB device not connected properly will stop a computer system from powering on. Disconnect any new devices recently added to your system. Sometimes new devices will conflict with other hardware within your computer and cause an overload on your computer's power supply. Disconnect any other devices connected to your computer such as the keyboard, mouse, monitor, printer or scanner and plug your computer into a electrical outlet by itself. Check to see if the computer works. If does work, shut it down and connect just one device, such as the monitor. Turn on the computer and monitor and see if everything works. Continue connecting devices until you find the one that is stopping your entire system from powering up. Hope it helps.

My cpu has power but i cant see anything on my monitor


Check that the Monitor power cable is firmly connected to the mains and the back of the monitor. Do u have the Power light on in front of the monitor?
Check the Signal cable running from the Computer to the Monitor. Is it firmly fixed at both ends?
If still no joy, plug a known working monitor to your computer. If u get a display, then your monitor might have gone bad or it might have been set to the lowest brightness (check the setting knob).
If swap monitor does not also work, then your Display (VGA) card is suspect, faulty. You may want to replace your VGA card.

Go to the recovery menu of your ps3and do it manually.
Follow this guide.

L1932TQ Fails on Desktop, works on Notebook


it simply means that your cpu is not giving back signal to your monitor to process, in fact, it is a cpu problem that is why there is nothing to display in your monitor.

Your cpu froze because of that usb thing. the only way to unfreeze it is to manually reset your hardware in this order.

1. RAM modules. If you can unplug your RAM (memory modules) connected in your motherboard, please do it. Just unplug the modules and then plug it back in. if you have 2 rams, then interchange them when plugging it back. this will force your mobo to refresh its resources.

2. CPU. if you can pull out your cpu chip, then do it. this will refresh your cpu setting in your mobo. (mobo = motherboard)
